About Frank Yakes

We have been vacationing in Hawaii for years and although all of the islands are beautiful, Kauai is our favorite! The tropical, laid-back setting of the island mixed with the local sights, sounds, and flavors sets Kauai apart. Vacationing here offers a number of opportunities for us to 'unwind', whether on land or sea!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the lovely stay! The condo was fabulous. Close to great restaurants (we loved the Beach House!), shops (Living Market was wonderful for breakfast, coffee and gourmet groceries) and beaches. We went on the Holo Holo Charter Tour of the Napli Coast for a day. The trip included snorkeling near Niihau Island were we saw dolphins, turtles, seals and even a whale. We totally recommend the trip to others. Thanks again for the wonderful accommodations, we'd love to return.

Comfortable, clean place in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My 17 year old daughter, husband and I escape the bitter Ottawa (On) cold for the Holidays and spent a wonderful vacation in Poipu Beach. The condo was exactly as pictured, spacious, comfortable and very clean. The location could not have been better, a short stroll to the beach, restaurants and shops, also a great gateway to other fantastic locations on the island like Waimea Canyon and Napali Coast. The kitchen was well stocked and we ended up preparing many meals at the condo, which is not something we normally do but we found great options for quick and easy meals at Costco and Safeway in Lihue. The resort is very well kept and beautiful and provided great service. When someone parked in our spot they quickly came to show us where to park for the night and put a note on the "offender's" car. The broken washer door was also fixed quickly. Frank was a very responsive owner and made sure all our needs were met. I agree with another review that the sleep sofa mattress was not super comfortable. As our daughter would sleep on it for almost 2 weeks, we quickly fixed this by purchasing a foam mattress topper at Walmart and left it there for future guests. Overall, an excellent stay, we were very sad to leave and will return for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind and thorough review of Kahala 932. We are happy to hear that you found the unit suited to your needs and you enjoyed your stay! Especially happy to hear that the resort was able to help with the parking issue. We are working on a solution for the queen sofa bed in the living room and in the meantime have modified our maximum occupancy to reflect the sleeper sofa. Mahalo for leaving the foam mattress for future guests. We look forward to your next stay.

Lovely condo for a couple

  • 5 of 5

The condo is lovely, the photos and description accurate. The daytime temperatures were in the upper 80's and low 90's during the week we stayed there. The coolest it got at night was upper 70's. We did not use the air conditioner in the bedroom. I think the cathedral ceilings probably helped keep the place cooler than units on lower floors with standard ceilings. The trade winds were blowing, and we kept all of the windows open, which also helped.

The building is close to Poipu Road, so there is some traffic noise which might be bothersome to those with sound sensitivity. And of course, there are lots of roosters wandering around the grounds (it is Kauai, after all!), and they make a lot of racket, too.

The description says that the condo sleeps 4, but the mattress on the sofa bed in the living room is frankly terrible; I could feel every support strut and spring. It is unusable, in my opinion. But it's a great place for a couple sleeping in the bedroom.

Overall, a very nice condo at a reasonable price for your Kauai vacation. Highly recommended.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as stated. The location was perfect for walking to two distinct different beaches. The unit had everything a home has. In fact we felt very much at home. Thank you Frank for renting and sharing your home with us. It was amazing.
